Types of Cancer

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is caused by the growth of malignant cells in the mammary gland. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women. The chances of evolving cancer in older women are higher than women of age less than 50 years. In 20th and mid-21st century breast cancer was the main source of cancer death in women around the world. But in 2012, that remained only in less-developed countries. In highly developed countries lung cancer outweighs breast cancer (Britannica Academic, 2019).

Lung Cancer

In the Western world lung cancer is most common cancer (Falk, 2010, p. 2). The lung cancer starts in the cells of the lungs. A cancerous tumor is a group of cancer that can grow into and destroy nearby tissues. When cancer starts in lung cells, it is called primary lung cancer. The lung is divided into two categories: small cell lung cancer and non-small lung cancer. Lung cancer affects over 3000 non-smokers a year in the UK (Falk, 2010, p. 10).Men are more likely to have lung cancer than women, and this disease converts more common as we grow elderly with an average age of onset in the mid-70s.

Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is the result of increase of malignant cells within the urinary bladder. As a result of this urinary bladder start to grow out of control. The bladder’s main job is to store urine. Cancer can spread to lymph nodes and other organs present near bladder. Bladder disease is about 2.5 to 2.7 occasions more typical in men than ladies, and whites are twice as prone to be influenced as blacks (Britannica Academic, 2012)

Skin Cancer

The cancer that forms in the tissues of the skin due to the abnormal growth of cells. Skin cancer is the most common and increasing  human cancer worldwide. However, most skin cancer are preventable and treatable. It is very important for us know how it can be cured. Most of skin malignancies can be treated if recognized at earlier stage but, melanoma , in particular, and SCC can kill (Karen L Agnew, 2013, p. 8).It can be prohibited by educating people about recreational habits, primary prevention sunbeds and sunscreens, clothing
